The Kay-Grant Group Scholarship

The 2019 Kay-Grant Group Scholarship is Open!

The Kay-Grant Group is a real estate agent group located in Scottdale, AZ committed to bettering all generations through education.  For this reason, we issue an annual scholarship to assist those interested in real estate, technology, or entrepreneurship with obtaining a formal education.

The winning applicant will receive a $1,000 scholarship to use towards higher education.  More than one winner may be chosen.  

This is not a needs-based scholarship.  Residing in Scottsdale, AZ or Arizona, in general, is not a requirement.

How to Apply for The Kay-Grant Group Scholarship

This scholarship is available exclusively to students who are already enrolled in a college or university. Students do not need to have already started their semester, but they need to be enrolled in a college or university at the present or beginning anytime in 2019.

In order to apply for the scholarship, please create a video clip that is less than 2 minutes in length and share it using YouTube.  In this video clip, please include:

  • Why you believe our scholarship could help you
  • What it will help you to achieve
  • Your goal and what you wish to achieve from your education

Please feel free to be creative with this.  If you aren't comfortable being on video yourself, that is not a requirement.  Feel free to make whiteboard videos, commercials, animated videos, etc.

It definitely helps to relate back to either technology, real estate, or entrepreneurship but is not required.

The winning video will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship to use towards tuition.  The funds will be paid directly to the college or university and may be applied to an outstanding balance or to future tuition.

Students must attend a school in the United States but do not need to be a United States citizen.

Simply upload your video (under two minutes, remember) to YouTube.  Please include "Kay-Grant Group Scholarship" in your title and add a link to http://kay-grant.com/scholarships in your video's description section so that we can find all videos easily.

Once your video is uploaded, please notify us by sending an email to scholarships@kay-grant.com. Please include a link to your video as well as.  In the email, please include:

  • Your full name, phone number, and mailing address
  • The name of the university or college you are attending
  • Evidence verifying your enrolment at that university or college (can be pretty much anything)
  • The course of study you are pursuing or planning to pursue
